Ballarat has always had such strong memories for me. It was my old creative stomping ground at Ballarat University. Some of my most favourite moments and best friends were made here, including meeting my one love and beautiful wife, Michelle. I was truly special to be back again. Reconnecting.
My last visit to Ballarat was a long time ago. There are definitely a few things I will always remember — most notable were the many overtly cold mornings and very few sunny days. However when the sun breaks through those clouds, Ballarat truly shines bright. Today was one of those days.
As the glistening sun stretched across Wendouree Lake, I knew today’s engagement shoot would be grand. What I hadn’t prepared for was how brilliantly amazing Ronafel and Andrew were going to be. Within a few minutes of our first meeting together, we were already out with the camera. They were absolutely awesome. Full of energy and just completely excited to have a bit of fun together photographing. And the images show it. We strolled the beautiful Botanical Gardens, Robert Clark Conservatory and shortly headed up to Federation University. The autumn colours were spectacular. We soon finished up over a beautiful sunset at Black Hill lookout, the day was perfect.
I swear the day became even brighter with Ronafel and Andrew together. The story of these two are amazing. Two different people living in two seperate countries, falling in love. An incredibly amazing couple who would take any step, or travel any length to be with each other. Love knows no distance and this young couple are proof of it. I love that I could be part of this. Thank you so much Ronafel and Andrew. I can’t wait to see the next page in your story unfold.
